PreSonus Fam Friday with Perry Tee!

08/06/2019

This is a good one Our Artist Relations Manager and Office favorite and all around coolest guy in the world Perry Tee is up for PreSonus Fam Friday! Read all about him below and be sure to follow him on Instagram! 1. How long have you worked for PreSonus?

Almost 7 years now. I started in July of 2012.

2. What's your official job title?

Hello my name is Perry Tee, Artist Relations Manager at PreSonus Audio Electronics, Inc.

3. What's your favorite thing about your job? Why did you choose to work here?

Being able to pull from all my skillsets and talents on a daily basis to succeed at my day job.

From my training and experiences as a musician performing live onstage (starting with the cello at age 8) or in recording sessions to my inner-nerd working in software environments (I started coding in Python around the time I got serious about the guitar, which was years before I used my first DAW

Emagic Logic 4.5) to sales/supply chain logistics (was a purchaser for major multimedia company back in the day, when we still bought DVD's and CD's as a society). I am also a polyglot (English, Mandarin, Portuguese, French and some Japanese) so that comes in handy in terms of communicating effectively with people from all different walks of life around the globe.

So, I moved out to Louisiana from California back in 2012 to get away; a perspective change/sabbatical if you will. Being the birthplace of Jazz New Orleans (NO) still has a vibrant live music scene compared to other cities these days, so I had enough $$$ saved up to live for at least 6 months. PreSonus is based an hour northwest of NO and they were hiring, so I applied on a whim, got hired and moved to Baton Rouge. Even though I no longer live in the 225, I'm still very lucky to be working daily with such amazing people no other company is quite like PreSonus in terms of camaraderie and dedication to making things happen, IMO.

4. Choose a movie title for the story of your life.

Interstellar . I travel between many different worlds' and can access experiences from all points in the timeline of my life's stored memory banks to find viable solutions and resolving issues effectively. Never journeyed through a wormhole, though.

5. What was the first 8-track, cassette, CD or digital download you purchased?

DEVO Freedom Of Choice.

6. Who's your go-to band or artist(s) when you can't decide on something to listen to?

Snarky Puppy, Thundercat, Bibi Bourelly, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals or just about any slide guitar solo performed by Derek Trucks.

7. What's your go-to Karaoke song?

Regulate Ft. Nate Dogg by Warren G.

8. Everyone has a side gig, what's yours? OR when you're not at PreSonus, what are you up to?

Playing guitar/guitar synth with Eric Levy (keyboardist with Night Ranger/Garaj Mahal), Jon Cornell (bassist with Jackie Greene/SNL Band) and Jakubu Griffin (drummer with Cirque Du Soleil Zarkana/NYC jazz heavies/Vega$ show ensembles).

Check out our very first YouTube video performance (we collaborated remotely using PreSonus Studio One 4 Pro DAW) of Pax Humana here:

But when I'm not PreSonus'ing (which is pretty much every day!), I'm in full-on #DadMode and LOVING every moment.

9. What instruments do you play?

Guitar, guitar synthesizer, cello, bass, piano, drums, the PreSonus ATOM and PreSonus Studio One 4 Pro which are to both be considered as creative musical instruments, IMO!

10. What do you love about the guitar?

The art of drawing out *tone* using my bare fingers on metal strings vibrating from nut to bridge saddles, captured by the magnetic pickup and passed through a hand-wired tube amplifier which gets translated into the final sound output at the speaker cone. Just being able to make a sound and sing through this interfacing is a reward in an of itself. Hopefully I can keep playing guitar to the end of my journey

.

11. Why did you choose this as your favorite?

What I love most about playing guitar it is that I get to engage in real-time musical conversations with other willing musicians and express myself freely without being bound by the spoken or written language construct. When those moments of true musical chemistry and magic happen, you know it's because the people involved are actively listening to one another, putting their heart and soul into the collective effort and channeling it as a group sonic painting event that rarely happens exactly the same way twice.

Speaking of musical magic, did y'all see Kodi Lee's recent audition video on America's Got Talent ? I was moved to

especially when his Dad lifts him up onstage near the end. Maaaaan!

12. Tell us about a successful event you worked with PreSonus products. InfoComm, NAMM, or an Install somewhere.

I've worked so many NAMM Shows over the past decade+ demoing gear and fielding questions, it's become an annual reference marker for me like family birthdays. I always look forward to the group dinners after a long, grueling day at Booth #18701.

13. Got any tips for working with Studio One?

Yes!!! Watch my Studio One 1-Minute Tip videos on my Instagram feed here: https://instagram.com/da.real.agentp/

14. What are you currently working on at PreSonus? What's next for you?

Finding more relevant product/use case resonant relationships for the company we're really interested in YouTubers and IG Influencers/Reviewers in addition to existing Artists, Producers, Touring Bands, Live FOH Engineers, Studio Mix Engineers, and Mastering Engineers.

15. What's the strangest talent you have?

I used to be able to perform the Doctor Who theme (lead synth melody line) using a cello bow on the edge of a standard hand saw; all while having gulped an entire packet of grape-flavored Pop Rocks and not letting the chaos inside my mouth affect my
